Malta car hire information

You will be in for a treat if you're planning a road trip with a car hire in Malta. Allowing complete freedom to explore the historical surroundings of this Mediterranean island, car rentals in Malta are convenient and easy with a variety of car rental companies to offer you assistance. When you're ready to hit the road you'll need to be aware of some of the general traffic rules. Roundabouts are quite common in Malta, so always give way to traffic entering the roundabout on the right-hand side and be aware that roads may not always be the best condition in terms of maintenance. With speed limits being 30 mph on urban roads and about 37 mph on rural roads, you will find that taking it slow is key with your car hire in Malta. Ensure you belt up in the front and rear of the car and if you are travelling with a baby, ensure your car hire company offers you a car seat to strap them up safely. Be aware of one-way streets as there are many of them and you will be fined for driving the wrong way. When it’s time to park your rental car, always stay clear of double yellow lines to avoid the hefty fines that are sometimes handed out by the local traffic wardens.

UK driving licence holders will not need to apply for an International Drivers Permit with car hire in Malta for a stay of up to 12 months. When you arrive to collect your car rental, you will need to show your home country licence stating you have been driving for longer than a year, your passport and a credit card. If you book online through momondo, be sure to take your booking confirmation documents with you, just in case you need to show any copies of your booking.

Malta is quite built up around the city of Valetta with narrow streets in historically older layouts. Due to the lack of trains on the island and overcrowding on the buses by locals, many of the streets of Malta are busy with traffic. Parking is often on-street which reduces the size of the roads further, adding to the congestion with the slow passing of traffic. Around rush hour it is always best to avoid the centre of Valetta. Consider renting a Sat Nav with your Malta car hire which can alert you to high traffic areas before you enter them. The busiest street in Malta is the Birkirkara Bypass, which is the most heavily congested road on the island.

Take your rental car in Malta off the beaten track and explore the rural areas for some of the most scenic routes on the island. You can find cheap rentals cars, including 4x4’s, to begin your adventure. The road that runs through the town of Gozo will offer you beautiful sea views with salt pans on the one side with lush greenery spanning the other side. If you can visit the Zonqor area, you will find one of the most famous routes for a road trip that includes historical towers, stunning coastlines, unspoilt countryside and farm animals grazing in nature. Triq Wied Musa is one of Malta’s straightest roads and passes through the Mellieħa region. When you rent a car and explore this route you will find it connects tourist areas like Għadira and Ċirkewwa, two bays with great stops along the way. Look for a great rental car comparison to begin the journey of a lifetime on the island of Malta.
